    You will need :
    One large aperture lens i.e. a Canon 50mm F1.8 is used here, Canon 50mm 1.2 will work even better
    One sheet of black paperboard
    1. Cut and shape the sheet to make a fake lens hood. The Diameter is made so that it snugly fits on the lens.
    2. In the middle of the filter the wanted bokeh shape is cut out, a heart is used for this example. I’m not sure how big a hole the shape can be. But you can check it right away by just looking through the viewfinder. On the 50mm lens @ F1.8 a 15mm heart gives a metering value equal to F3.2, so it can probably be a little bigger (you can use a puncher or cut it by hand).
    Or find a favorite bull breed silhouette like below

    3. Set your camera to its lowest aperture value (completely open).
    Here are two shots to demonstrate this technique

    Here’s a vid on the same effect, goto 8:00m into the video to see the video effect
